dc.description.abstract The micro-plant and reactive distillation concepts have been researched in this thesis. The aim of the project is to invent a technique for the production of pure 2-methoxy-2,4,4-trimethylpentane (TOME). After the production, physical property of interest of the chemical compound would be determined. The first phase of this project relates to the production of TOME with the micro-plant constructed by Aalto University chemical engineering research group. In the second section, TOME was manufactured with reactive distillation principle. These two mechanisms were later compared, specifically for TOME production . Special interest has been focused towards 2-methoxy-2,4,4-trimethylpentane for over a decade. 2-methoxy-2,4,4-trimethylpentane has been recognised as one of the few chemical compounds that could be utilised as fuel additive (fuel oxygenate) in gasoline pool. However, production of the pure chemical is very demanding. In this thesis, all the obstacles encountered during production of this fuel oxygenate would be revealed. A range of separation principles have been implemented for the realisation of pure TOME. The time available for this project is very limited, notwithstanding density measurement of 2-methoxy-2,4,4-trimethylpentane and 2,4,4-trimethyl-1-pentene were conducted. The density measurement of these chemical compounds was accomplished at varying temperatures and compared with literature values. en
